Council OKs non-potable pump house retrofit project

Posted

Fort Lupton City Council unanimously approved a $240,000 contract with Polarized Water Solution for a retrofit project on the city’s non-potable pumphouse on March 1. 

The money comes from the non-potable water system section of the utility fund budget. 

Public Works Director Roy Vestal said PWS submitted the lowest, responsible bid of four the city received. 

“The city consultant and the engineer evaluated the bid and recommended awarding the contract to PWS,” Vestal told the council. “The money in the budget was $385,000, and we are recommending a contract not to exceed $240,000.” 

There was no public discussion, nor were there any questions from the council. 

One more contract 

Council also approved a preconstruction contract with GH Phipps as construction manager for the new public library facility. The vote was unanimous. 

The library’s assistant director, Thomas Samblanet, told councilors the deal would not exceed $6.7 million, which is below budget. That pleased Mayor Zo Stieber, who said the council doesn’t like so-called “change orders.” 

Meeting time change 

Council also approved, on second reading, an ordinance to change the time of its regular meetings and town halls. 

Those will begin at 6 p.m. starting April 15. The item was on the council’s consent agenda, which is for items that staff considers routine and not in need of discussion. There wasn’t any, and councilors approved the consent agenda unanimously.
